How long before a PIP assessment is scheduled?

Mike72 Member Posts: 23 Listener
Hi all, 

Does anyone have a ball park figure of the time scale required from originally applying for PIP to the assessment appointment to the final decision? So far it has been 10 weeks since I applied and I do not even have a assessment appointment yet  even though I was informed it would be between  6 - 8 weeks. No one seems to be able to tell me. Through illness I am unable to work and I have doctors certification. Therefore I am really struggling financially to make ends meet. Does anyone have any suggestions please?
